He lives happily in London with his wife and their cocker spaniel, Harriett, and advises charities dedicated to the preservation of endangered species. He has won the Children's Book of the Year prize in the French 'Tam-Tam, j'aime lire' competition, and the 'Prix Enfant-Grandparent Europeen', both for 'Torn Ear'.
